Chart showing inheritance of ability, Eugenics Education Society. This poster was commissioned by the English Eugenics Education Society and designed and produced by Philip Benson's London advertising agency in 1926. The society was founded in 1907 and by 1914 it had over 1,000 members. It aimed to promote public awareness of eugenic problems, advocating the 'improvement' of human hereditary traits through social intervention.
